TYPES OF SLEEP TESTS
POLYSOMNOGRAM (PSG): Polysomnography is an overnight test that measures multiple variables during sleep, including the patient’s airflow through the nose and mouth, blood pressure, electrocardiographic activity, blood oxygen level, brain wave patterns, eye movement, and the movement of respiratory muscle and limbs. We also observe various sleep stages and body positions of the patient throughout the night.
CPAP TITRATION: If there is evidence for sleep apnea, you will be called back for continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) analysis. This study involves placing a mask over the nose and blowing in air at a pressure to help prevent snoring and apnea. The pressure is gradually titrated upward to ensure that the right settings for the patient is determined.
SPLIT NIGHT: (PSG/CPAP) Split night PSG is conducted when moderate or severe sleep apnea has been discovered or strongly suspected during the first part of the nights study. The second half of the night is used to determine the necessary CPAP pressure required to alleviate apnea.
MAINTENANCE OF WAKEFULNESS TEST (MWT): Is used to measure how alert you are during the day. It shows whether or not you are able to stay awake for a defined period of time. This is an indicator of how well you are able to function and remain alert in quiet times of inactivity.
MULTIPLE SLEEP LATERNCY TEST (MSLT): Is also called a nap test. It is used to see how quickly you fall asleep in quiet situations during the day. The MSLT is the standard way to measure your level of daytime sleepiness. Excessive sleepiness is when you are sleepy at a time and place when you should be awake and alert.
